  1. We learned through his Facebook that Joe died today. His son posted a sad and warm text. I don't know if I should copy and paste or just let people say how much they loved him. I'll leave it up to you. My very first post in Songacts, was in 2004. My first answer was sweet UncleJoe's... ❤️ ❤️

  2. Joe was a steadfast SF rock, always had a kind or funny word. A gentle soul. Although he refused to ever wear pants, that's one of the things we loved about him. So sad, not to mention shocked, to hear of his passing. He'll always be remembered as one of the Songfacts OGs, a true original. ❤️

  3. (Amazing that I still remembered my password here!) Was referred to this page by a link provided by Edna on the news of the passing of Uncle Joe, which is devastating. But I am glad to find this thread and read names I recall fondly. I think of the old Songfacts gang often. My wife and I moved from Brazil to America 4 1/2 years ago, bought a motor home and have now travelled the nation since, until grounded in Louisiana for the past year by Covid. Since March, have been visiting friends and family in Brazil. Will return to the USA in May where we plan to get back on the road. Still write poetry from time to time and am always taking photos. If anyone is interested, when we came to America in November of 2016, my wife and I started a FaceBook page/blog Rondi's Great Adventure. Like or follow that page and when we head your way, would love to stop in to see you. Plan to see Marc (remember him?) next fall when passing near L.A. Blessings on each and every one of you. Joe At Forks In The Road We met early, like a Monday; by Friday we were friends Neither one suspecting that this week might one day end Bound by forks we chose; or agreed to build together Exploring with a faith that love shared grows forever Longtime friend, true chum, old mate, one same as a brother Whatever friendship offers; it’s found within the other Sharing better natures, our guide is that yet shared Quiet when required; listening whispers, “Cared.” Never fearing experience nor dependencies allowed In resilient terms, with bonds of steel, devoted and avowed Thank you, friend, for lessons learned by staying on that road And as the trail winds to its peak, your back that shared my load

  4. That is sad. He was a Philly guy. He was a good guy even though he never wore pants. This is Phil. I haven’t posted in years. I still have my Songfacts T-shirt. Still fits. RIP Joe

  5. Uncle Joe was surely one of the good guys. Always funny and friendly to everyone. (Thank you to Edna for letting me know about UJ's passing). You know, this Topic is like an actual wake. You don't see family and friends for years until somebody dies...then you realize you miss them all. I do miss you guys.

  6. Thanks for letting me know Elena, and Hi Laurie and Shawna. Joe was a good friend with such a great sense of humour. I don't believe he ever had a bad word for anyone, and was an example to us all. My condolences to his Family. I'm sure he is with God now.

  7. "It's amazing how our love for music has brought so many from all parts of the world to come together as a family and share our experiences with each other". I coulnd't say it better, Laurie. Love you Uncle Joe.

  8. I do believe Uncle Joe was one of the first members to greet me on Songfacts. I mostly remember how much he made us all smile with his witty humor and his "no pants" jokes made me laugh so hard. He loved picking on me when he found the opportunity to do so, and I didn't mind at all because he always made me smile. It's a pleasure to be a part of the Songfacts family, he was an Uncle to all of us. I loved chatting with him about his love for music, family, food, and life in general. It's amazing how our love for music has brought so many from all parts of the world to come together as a family and share our experiences with each other. Rest in Peace Uncle Joe....you will be remembered and missed by many. ❤️

    The "Old" Songfacts Gang

    Hi All ! I haven;t been here for a long time, mostly because I'm still fairly computer illiterate and I have trouble negotiating the Site. It's good to see some of my great Mates here. Hope you all had a happy Christmas and have a wonderful 2019. Here's a photo of my whole Family taken on Christmas Day. I'm at the back - now OLD 78.

  10. I think a true musician would never "badmouth" another musician. Though many fables and myths stem from media heresay. Musicians never cut down other musicians. Those that do aren't musicians or are simply jealous. Lynryd Skynryd never cut down Neil Young just like Roberta Flack never dissed Don Mclean.

  11. That´s funny... My husband saw that guitar and immediately showed me the album, he bought it some twenty or thirty years ago...

  12. You got it right for sure....but the photo I used was from the brand new Fender catalog. It seems they are selling exact replicas of Rory's guitar with permission from his family. They have done this with many classic rockers guitars.
